Under the glare of the studio lights, she held her nerve to beat some of the best brains in Britain.

The writer and perfume collector’s victory was met with a standing ovation by the audience and viewers at home heaped praise on her.

Melissa’s husband was in the studio and jumped for joy as she won the money.

Host Bradley Walsh held her hand as the tearful contestant revealed her late grandma was his biggest fan and would have been so proud of her win.

One viewer said on Twitter: “Well done Melissa, amazing stuff.

A second posted: “Well done Melissa! Impressive. I love when couples with young children get a life changing leg up. Heartwarming.

Um terceiro disse: “Melissa should be a new Chaser, what a star!”

The win followed another impressive £30,000 victory earlier in the episode.
